    Memorial Day Weekend Pool Prep

    We'll be hosting a pool party all Memorial Day weekend which means the pool will be occupied with friends and family the majority of the weekend starting Friday evening. Should the FC level be increased to prepare for the 'high traffic' in the pool or just monitor more closely and adjust accordingly?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I also have two parties coming up, one on Saturday and another on Sunday. I believe the recommendation is to raise the FC by 2 before a party and by 2 after the party if possible.

    Thanks for the info, my fault for overlooking the obvious.
